Ridge Warns of Election Terror Plot

The AP is report that al Queda hopes to disrupt the Presidential election with terror.
A steady stream of intelligence, including nuggets from militant-linked Web sites, indicates al-Qaida wants to attack the United States to disrupt the upcoming elections, federal officials said Thursday.
I'd just like to insert a special, heart-felt thanks to the invertebrates of Spain who have encouraged this.
Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said the Bush administration based a decision to bolster security on credible reports about al-Qaida's plans, coupled with the pre-election terror attack in Spain earlier this year and recent arrests in England, Jordan and Italy.

"This is sobering information about those who wish to do us harm," Ridge said. "But every day we strengthen the security of our nation."
